Have Any Question
From where did you get the idea to start Sinchan?
Sinchan wasn't an NGO when we started it 4 years ago. Dr. Uma Sharma, the then professor at Nalini Arts College crossed paths with kids playing in Sardar Patel Rajmarg and the idea of properly guiding them stuck get mind. She then initiated to teach them at Sanket in Anand.
What changes can you see in the children after years of learning?
Children can now read, write and speak English, Hindi and Gujarati. They can also sing national anthem, explain gravitational force, narrate tables up to 12, greet birthdays, apologize and have become grateful of learning things.
How did the children reacted when you approached them to teach for the first time?
The first time I reached out to them at Sardar Patel Rajmarg, they were very ill-mannered and would not take learning as a serious activity. They were in school but would not attend their classes. "It was difficult at first because we did not had proper classrooms. It was and it is still a footpath" says Dr. Uma. But after consistent efforts of mentoring and nourishing their skills, I am a proud teacher and want to best for their future.
